The thoroughly updated 2nd Edition of this user-friendly resource uses over 1200 carefully selected cases to examine the entire spectrum of CNS diseases of the head and spine. Over 1350 illustrations of neuropathology depict both typical and unusual appearances. Hundreds of cross references link the cases to each other to highlight similarities, distinctions, and variations among conditions. Consistent labeling of images on each page enable quick scanning of individual topics.
Highlights the potential similarities of different pathologies using side-by-side comparisons.
Illustrates the range of appearances for each pathology with multiple examples.
Focuses on the interpretation of MR scans as they are encountered in practice.
Contains over 150 illustrated differential diagnoses.
Examines recently recognized disorders, including posterior reversible edema syndrome, spinal cord herniation, and dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor.
Features a significantly expanded pictorial index illustrating diagnostic possibilities within key patterns of MR findings.
Presents the latest technical advances, including the widespread use of FLAIR sequences and improved MR angiography, and the increasing contribution of diffusion-weighted images and proton spectroscopy.
Incorporates over 600 new cases.
